I知 sure this has been discussed in length I the past but I have some questions.  I currently game the 2017 M2 in 9.5 loft with a Diamana D+ 60 and my miss is a hook to the left.  I知 quite sure some of it is my swing but is the 2017 model more prone to hooks?

With all the discussions about the 2016 version being the bomb and such I am very intrigued by it.  Is it more fade bias?  Also how is it for launch and spin compared to the 2017 version?  If I pick one up should I stay in 9.5 loft or loft up. I am happy with my current ball flight on the 9.5 lofted 2017 model.

Not looking to open up a can of worms just looking for some friendly advice.  I致e always played Titleist or Cobra drivers and this is my first venture into TM.

For me the 2017s were considerably more draw bias. There is an official TM story written by one of the GolfWRX writing staff from last year saying the same thing. TM built the 2017s to be slightly more draw biased, but I found them to be REALLY draw biased. The 2016 M2 wanted to go left for me too. I loved the look of the heads though.

I think the 2016 M2 was also lower spin than the 2017 M2.

I had both and hated the 2017 model. Flew higher spin more and hated the sound.

Thanks!  I would really like to find out more about what loft guys are playing in the 2016 version and why.

...I've been gaming the 2016 M2 in 9.5 loft since they came out -- with my ultra low/low shaft this gives me the best carry & roll out -- added a few pieces of lead tape to the sole and it's a bomber that has yet to be replaced!
